Your Cry Shall Not Have a Resting Place

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Job 16 and 17 today.
Poor Job suffered immensely. He did not know what to do. Therefore, he cried endlessly to God. Job wanted his pleas to continue until they were answered. He said, “O earth, do not cover my blood, and let my cry have no resting place!” (Job 16:18). Job had not died yet, but he was picturing himself like Abel, whom Cain killed. Abel’s blood cried out to God from the ground until He dealt with Cain. Likewise, Job did not want his cries of suffering to be quiet, but to continue, not finding a place to rest, but working endlessly to deliver him.
What have been your prayers? They are ascending before the throne of God. Do not cease praying. He hears you. Be patient. He will deliver you.
